It’s Valentine’s Day and on such an occasion it’s only appropriate to recognize arguably the greatest love story ever told. It is a truth universally acknowledged that Pride and Prejudice is a very romantic novel. Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy are literature’s greatest lovers and remain the standard by which all couples in a love story are compared.
